This was a free show in the Wolf Den, a small venue in the center of the "Earth" casino. All you need to do is line up early and get great seats. I would have expected the band to be tired, as this was the fifth night in a row for them, but the crowd was stoked and the band responded by playing a great show. They were obviously having as much fun up on stage as the crowd was watching and listening.
They did a few numbers from their new album, to be released in January, along with some solid favorites.
This was only the third show I have recorded, and my carelessness cost me, as I lost the last part of the Key to the Highway encore. There was another taper in attendance, so the entire show will surface. Nonetheless the recording is pretty good and I hope you will enjoy and share it.
Big thanks to taper Smokin' Joe who loaned me the mics to get me started.
